Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, 2015 Melbourne Business School
Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof
Geoffrey P Martin
We examine the unique nature of agency problems within publicly traded family firms by investigating the earnings management decision of dominant family owners relative to non-family. To do so, we draw upon literature demonstrating that family owners are loss averse with respect to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW), or the affective endowment derived from firm ownership and control. Our theory and findings suggest that potential reputational consequences of earnings management lead family principals to engage in less of this practice relative to non-family firms, and that founder family firms are less likely than non-founder family firms to use earnings ...

Rise And Fall Of An Information Technology Outsourcing Program: A Qualitative Analysis Of A Troubled Corporate Initiative, David A. Johanek
Education Doctoral Dissertations in Leadership
Information technology outsourcing (ITO) is a common business practice and a widely studied topic in academic literature. However, far less attention is paid to the implications and social dynamics of executives’ pursuit of personal career achievement through the implementation of ITO programs. Focused mainly on gaining organizational power for career advancement and accomplishment, executives can create unintended consequences for their employees, their suppliers, their company, their shareholders, and their own careers.
This research focused on a large information technology outsourcing program from its inception to early implementation at a single Fortune 1000 firm. The time span covered was just over ...

An Analytical Representation Of Flexible Resource Allocation In Hospitals, 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology
An Analytical Representation Of Flexible Resource Allocation In Hospitals, Michael Thorwarth, Wael Rashwan, Amr Arisha
Non-linear processes within complex systems are difficult to predict. Using discrete event simulation (DES) models can be helpful for presenting the uncertainty level embedded within these processes. However, the interpretations of the resulting outcomes can be challenging to analyze. This is evident when experimenting with simulation models, and therefore requires the adaptation of existing models. Introducing cyclic entities such as interconnected resources to the simulation model adds a new level of complexity to the model. In practical cases, decision makers often demand a model that enables them to make quick decisions with less complexity involved. However, these individuals still want ...

The Role Of Coordination Bias In Platform Competition, 2015 Bank of Canada
The Role Of Coordination Bias In Platform Competition, Hanna Halaburda, Yaron Yehezkel
This paper considers platform competition in a two-sided market that includes buyers and sellers. One of the platforms benefits from a favorable coordination bias in the market, in that for this platform it is less costly than for the other platform to convince customers that the two sides will coordinate on joining it. We find that the degree of the coordination bias affects the platform's decision regarding the business model (i.e., whether to subsidize buyers or sellers), the access fees and the size of the platform. A slight increase in the coordination bias may induce the advantaged platform ...
Ultrasonic Wedges For Testing Of Turbine Blade Roots, 2015 Innovative Research Publications
Ultrasonic Wedges For Testing Of Turbine Blade Roots, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Ibe, G. A
Innovative Research Publications IRP India
The integrity of turbine blade roots and attachments is fundamental to the power infrastructure. Therefore, it requires the adoption of appropriate wedges with an effective ultrasonic testing system. Turbine components have complicated geometry which ordinarily impedes proper coupling to the wedge. However, different configurations of the ultrasonic wedge have been developed to obviate this constraint. In this paper, the various types of ultrasonic wedge are reviewed vis-a-vis their conformability to the turbine blade root geometry. Also, the possible application of cylindrical multiple flat-faced wedges is discussed.

Human Factors Analysis And Classification System Interrater Reliability For Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Investigations, Roberto Cintron
Dissertations and Doctoral Studies
Human errors are an expected result of operations performed by individuals and frequently lead to accidents and other catastrophic events. The problem is that the current process used to investigate and mitigate human errors in the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industries is not effective, as it does not include the effects of human factors found to be effective in aviation and nuclear power organizations. The human factors and classification system (HFACS) was created for the investigations of accidents using the Swiss cheese model of accident causation as a theoretical framework. The purpose of this quantitative, inter-rater reliability study was to demonstrate the ...
